    How bout it?
    Doesn't that feel good? On the road, final drive run through the throats of the TItans, capitalized by a ridiculous Ballard TD.
    These wins have different feelings than in recent memory with Manning. With Peyton, we just expected to win every game. Now, things are different and you hope they can pull it out, but don't quite have the same amount of confidence in the boys.
    Defense continues to step up even though QBs are really efficient against us, somehow they aren't scoring very much. A lot of bending, but no breaking which is good.
    Good to see D Brown back, as well.
    Luck's first road win and the first time he's had a winning record. Let's hold onto it.

    Better, closer, warmer...
    All right, we got the win. It wasn't pretty. It was ugly, brutal. No matter, it's a W.
    After I complained about Arians being so complacent and not going for anything or trying to do anything last week, he goes for two 4th downs (one resulted in offside). One of which was with about 5mins to go in the third Q on our OWN 24. Wow. If you didn't know the meaning of ballsy, now you do. We are up 14-13 at the time, it seemed as though Arians had no trust in the defense as Cleveland went down for a TD on the previous drive. I congratulate him on the call, though. If we didn't get it? Hey, we still have Luck and I believe he'd go down the field for the points needed.
    Like I said last week, don't conform. That was definitely not conforming.
    The offense in the second half was very troubling and our inability to stop Weeden for large portions was disgruntling. But hey! We stepped up huge on stopping the run which I thought we would. Angerer is back and looked good. No Redding this game either which is even better in the long run as he's probably our best DT.
    But how about the second half offense? We scored three points in the second half and ended up winning. How often can you say that? It was very similar to the Jags and Vikings game. Almost exact. We scored in the first half and couldn't do anything in the second. We have to solve this problem. Whatever it is. The offense just isn't moving the ball in the second half when leading in the first.
    What does everyone think? What needs to happen for us to keep winning games?
    I mean, this win was kind of lucky, but kind of not. Browns had it, and let it go. Gordon dropped that TD. Maybe it was ChuckStrong once again.
    Definitely need to grab a win against the suddenly hot Titans...

    A lot of problems with this loss. Obviously, good getting out to a lead in first half, that's about it.
    MJD? Everyone knew he was going to have a good game, couldn't stop that. Not disappointed though because like I said, we knew that was going to happen.
    First, why is Pagano challenging that INT? He was obviously out of bounds, just a complete waste of timeout when one was needed in the 2nd half. Who told him to challenge that? Look at it once, and you'd know.
    Second straight week we come out with a lead in the 2nd half and just can't do anything. Like with Peyton, we're a better team when playing from behind. All of a sudden we have a lead and we're too conservative. Running the ball too much and then one incompletion to end the drive. Act like you're losing and need points. Just stupid. Come out some points.
    Third, Vinatieri is just upsetting. I don't know how many times he has missed easy FGs for us. Already has two on the year. Make that one against Chicago, it's a different game. Has had plenty throughout the years though. He is not as good as everyone thinks, let's just leave it at that.
    Fourth, how about those no calls? Reggie just getting blanketed, no call. I think it was Avery on that deep ball, nailed before the ball gets there, no call. I mean, that could be the game right there as well. Had to punt after that. Considering there was a ton of call this weekend and in this game, those two weren't called. Terrible.
    Fifth, didn't even try to go for more at the end, just going for a FG. Come on. Three straight runs didn't cut it. I know Brown almost got the first down, but still. If you get that first down, the game is over.
    Sixth, We can not trust our defense. I don't know the last time we actually could. Won't even comment on that last Jags TD. Gabbert is not good. Constantly overthrows receivers, cannot run a drive. He is 3-0 against the Colts. That is pretty disgusting.
    Needed that win.
    Bye week then Packers. If we can't stop Gabbert, good luck with Rodgers. If we let Luck loose, there is a chance though and if Freeney is back. Maybe...

    Hey, last week, great win. Good comeback after a terrible start.
    Jets game, terrible tackling, terrible run defense, the Jets got five yards on every run. I mean, it wasn't fun to watch.
    Second half, we make some stops on defense and then we punt it, two times. Sure, the first punt was needed after intential grounding, but the second punt. Run the ball two times, make good yardage in Jets territory, 4th and 2. Hey, our defense isn't doing anything this week, we can't stop the run, so let's punt it and give it back to them on the 20 so they can run right through us again. Because you know, we thought our run defense would be able to tackle someone. You're down 15 points with 5mins left in third quarter. Opponent territory. You went for it against the Packers last week when it was 0-0 and you didn't get it. Now you don't go for it when you're already down. Change things up, change the momentum. The Jets got a 4th down and 11 and that changed a lot. Do something. You're in a good position. Don't punt it right there
    Just like they told Luck last week, don't be a robot. Hey, coaches, don't be robots. Do something new, mix it up.
    It's amazing how bad the run defense was. Even in the fourth quarter, you KNOW they are going to run. Oh Okay, 5 yards per carry still, what the heck?
    It's about as hard to watch as last year. Except last year we knew we were really bad. Now, we had expectations after last week and we reverted back to 2011 Colts.
    Shonn Greene just ran for 160 yards and three TDs against us. I think that says it all. Wow.
